AN 8-DAY PAID CONTRACT WILL BE OFFERED IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE AUDITION. PERFORMERS WILL ALSO RECEIVE PHOTOS AND VIDEOS OF THEIR PERFORMANCES.
BalaSole Dance Company is currently seeking high-calibered male and female solo dance artists (of all shapes, sizes, ages, ethnicities, styles and backgrounds) to perform their 3 to 4-minute self-choreographed solo pieces, as well as BalaSole's collaborative ensemble pieces, for its 2019 NYC Concert Season at the Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater in New York City on August 16 & 17, 2019.
The first part of the audition will involve learning a short group combination. The second part will involve presentations of self-choreographed solo pieces (3-4 minutes MAXIMUM) to be performed in the company's 2019 NYC Concert Season. Please bring your costume and music, and DO NOT attend the above audition if your solo is unfinished. During the audition, emphasis will be given to artistry. An advanced proficiency in either modern, contemporary, jazz, or ballet is required.
Artists who are not selected as soloists at the audition have another opportunity to perform in BalaSole's ensemble pieces as part of the company's Emerging & Re-Emerging Artist Program. BalaSole's Emerging & Re-Emerging Artist Program is a non-paid performance opportunity that provides artists professional experience and visibility at a prominent NYC dance venue.
